The aim of the course is to obtain a CPL (H) and allow you to operate as a co-pilot on multi-pilot, multi-engine helicopters in commercial air transport, limited to visual flight rules (VFR) privileges.
Your theoretical knowledge and examinations will be of the level required for the issue of an ATPL (H) once you have completed the necessary flying experience and skills tests to upgrade your licence.
You will need to complete at least 650 hours of theoretical knowledge training, plus at least 20 hours for Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC).
You will need to pass an exam to demonstrate an appropriate level of theoretical knowledge.
The total flying training requirement (above) must include the following components:
Exact hour requirements for each of these components are set out below.
You will need to complete 95 hours’ dual visual instruction, including the following components:
75 hours of the total dual instruction requirement must be visual instruction, which may include one of the four options in below:
10 hours of the basic instrument instruction, which may include up to 5 hours in a helicopter FNPT I, or an aeroplane.
10 hours of the total dual instruction requirement must be MCC instruction, for which a helicopter FFS, FTD 2,3 (MCC) or FNPT II/III (MCC) may be used.
If the helicopter used for flying training is different from the helicopter FFS used for visual training, the credit will be limited to that allocated for an FNTP II/III.
Your skill test must be taken after completing the course on a multi-engine helicopter and comply with MCC requirements.
